A little bit of Art. A lot of Beacon Hill. And an excuse to check out one of Boston's most historic and beautiful neighborhoods while supporting local artists.

The Beacon Hill Art Walk is an annual event that takes place on the first Sunday in June, throughout the nooks & crannies of Beacon Hill's North Slope.  Residents open up their private gardens, alleyways, and courtyards and allow artists to display and sell their artwork.

It is a chance for visitors to tour the private spaces of Beacon Hill while viewing original, handmade artwork. Thousands of people attend each year. It is a free popular event in the neighborhood, with a festive atmosphere and volunteer musicians playing in various gardens throughout the day.

Around 100 artists usually participate, with a variety of styles, media, and subject matter. As a visitor you will enjoy a unique atmosphere boasting bursts of colors at the background sound of live classical, klezmer, and folk music playing in various gardens throughout the day. Artists display a variety of styles, media, and subject matter.
